Taught By: Glynn Torres-Spelliscy

Section: A

CRN: 1867

Credits: 3

This course introduces the fundamental concepts of international law. We consider basic ideas and problems of public international law: What is the origin of international law? Is international law really law? Who is governed by international law? How are treaties interpreted? What is the relationship between international law and domestic law? We examine the interplay between international law and international politics, as well as between international human rights, humanitarian law, the use of force, and international criminal prosecutions. We also analyze the international law implications of various conflicts in the post 9/11 era, including Afghanistan, Iraq, and others.
